NIKE AIR CLASSIC BW The Nike Air Classic BW is a running sneaker in Nike’s Air Max family of design, making its debut in 1991 under the original moniker the Nike Air Max IV. The model was renamed for its retro release as the Nike Air Classic BW (Big Window). The most popular colorway for the Nike Air Classic BW is the ‘Persian Violet’.

Nike Air Classic BW – Obsidian – White

Entirely overshadowed by notable veterans in their 25th and 30th years, the Nike Air Classic BW‘s 21st anniversary has gone all but unnoticed.  The Big Window has always had that dubious distinction as one of those ‘follow-up’ styles that never got the same due as its immediate predecessor, but with the Air Max 90 enjoying so much attention and different versions at retail, the ol’ Air Max IV has quietly chugged along with some solid understated builds for 2012.  This Obsidian and white getup isn’t enough to save the Bronx Bombers’ crash and burn but it’s most definitely a potential workhorse for your everyday rotation and you’ll find them available exclusively (how ironic is this for a Yankees colorway) at England’s JD Sports.

Nike Air Classic BW “Baroque Brown”

It was Nike Sportswear’s first canvas upon which to experiment with the apparently now defunct Torch layered mesh, but the former Air Max IV has been conspicuous by its absence in the Hyperfuse update collection. Instead, the Nike Air Classic BW stays true to its name with new colorups honoring the time-tested Big Window design, like this new dark chocolate affair whose careful blocking reveals a whole world of gradient possibilities in the 1991 Air Max running flagship. These are ready for 2012′s cold months and beyond with a mix of grainy leather and suede, and they’ll arrive at select NSW retailers next month.

Nike Air Classic BW – White – Obsidian – Orange

A mid-’00s mainstay that releases mostly in Europe these days, Nike Sportswear brings us a new colorway of the Air Max 90′s immediate successor. Debuting in 1991 as the Air Max IV, the Nike Air Classic BW has evolved into one of NSW’s cult favorites thanks to a unique build whose midfoot arc can be seen to foreshadow the bold Air Max 97. But unlike that iconic futuristic design, the Big Window’s silo hearkens back to the golden era, as does this simple white leather design with scant Obsidian and orange accents. Have a closer look after the jump and pre-order from Titolo so yours ship ASAP in October.

It’s been so long since a new Big Window release that our Classics Revisited look into the 2003 Stash collabo was the last entry here on Sneaker News. Nike Sportswear rectifies that in time for the holiday shopping season with a new colorway familiar to all sneakerheads, as the Nike Air Classic BW returns in a bred getup along with just the right amount of Wolf Grey. This colorup and the inclusion of a patent leather Swoosh makes for some serious Air Jordan overtones, and you can examine this latest Air Classic BW after the jump before pre-ordering from Titolo.

Classics Revisited: Stash x Nike Air Classic BW (2003)

So we’ve covered a ton of major sneaker collaborations within all the categories we’ve touched on for Classics Revisited, but there are still a few heavy-hitting releases that haven’t found a place yet – until now. For this week, Classics Revisited will highlight five awesome sneaker collaborations with some of the most notable figures of that exclusive club, and what better way than to start with perhaps one of the best Air Max releases of all-time – the Stash x Nike Air Classic BW. This 2003 release would mark the beginning of a long-standing relationship between the Brooklyn-based Josh Franklin and Nike, resulting several releases similar to the iconic colorway seen here.

The first-ever Stash x Nike partnership was for Nike’s Artist Series, which gave hand-selected artists the opportunity to display their distinct qualities using classic Nike sneakers; Stash colored up the BW in what would prove to be one of the most iconic colorways in sneakerhead history, embroidering the tongue with his insignia and adding graffiti-styled insoles. The shoes were limited to just 1,000 pairs and were housed in a limited edition slide-out box, accompanied by a special hangtag. Each of the 1,000 released pairs were available only at select Niketown locations worldwide. Expect ‘Artist Series’ to be a common theme this week, so check out the Stash BWs after the jump and let us know if you’ve got these in your ‘stash’!

A Euro favorite that keeps a relatively low profile in the Nike Sportswear lineup while never fading into obscurity like some of its former flagship brethren, the Nike Air Classic BW is back with a new colorway that should ship next month. These Wolf Grey Big Windows have a classic varsity look that hearkens back to a time just before the Air Max IV debuted in 1991, and their aggressive yet neutral styling has the kind of tightwire balance that can be useful for so many different kinds of outfits. Titolo has pairs available for pre-order now, so have a closer look below and let us know if these make the back-to-school shopping list.

Classics Revisited: Nike “Clerks” Pack (2005-2006)

July 9th, 2012 by | 7 comments

nike clerks pack Classics Revisited: Nike Clerks Pack (2005 2006)


Over the last several weeks, Sneaker News has covered a nice variety (albeit a small chunk of the massive library of sneakers) of notable releases from the last decade for Classics Revisited consisting of Air Max collaborations, early-era Foamposites, and even Air Jordan Lows. Each of the aforementioned carry some heavy weight, but special attention must be given to one particular piece of verbage that continues to be used today – the sneaker ‘Pack’. What a ‘Pack’ annotates is either an official or un-official gathering of sneakers that fall under on specific sub-category – the recent ‘Home Run Derby’ Pack of the Nomo and two Griffeys being a prime example. Beginning in 2005, Nike teamed up with a number of notable sneaker retailers for the ‘Clerks’ Pack, which involved a veritable list of reputable shops like UNDFTD, Stussy, Huf, and Size? over the span of one year. Three major cities were targeted for the Clerks Pack, beginning with Los Angeles in 2005, and followed by London and San Francisco in 2006.

The first leg of the Clerks Pack begin in Los Angeles with Stussy (Blazer Mid ’73), Union (Air Force 180), and UNDFTD (Dunk High NL) and released in 2005; of the three, the Air Force 180 is certainly the attention-grabber of the bunch, with the high-rise silhouette given an astounding visual punch with safari print, a gradient white/pink midsole, and the color-blotted spots on the ankle collar and insole. The Clerks Pack continued in London (April 2006) with three Air Max silhouettes (Air Max 90, Air Stab, and Air Classic BW) with the Air Max 90, inspired by the scenic colors of Brighton Beach, being the most coveted of the three, and finally in San Francisco (July 2006) with NORT (Dunk High), Huf (Air Max 90), and True (Air Humara). If anyone has all nine of the original Clerks Pack to call their own, many kudos for owning one of the most memorable ‘Pack’ releases in Nike history!
